An Ontario, Canada, high school is defending a male-to-female shop teacher who wears abnormally large breast prosthetics to class.

Kayla Lemieux, who identifies as a transgender woman, said the prosthetic breasts are part of the gender transition process. Lemieux also wears a blond wig and a miniskirt to class.

Lemieux went viral on Twitter and Reddit.com after students posted photos and videos online.

Oakville Trafalgar High School administration defended Lemieux by warning parents and other teachers who complained.

The school warned that criticism of Lemieux is considered discrimination under the Ontario Human Rights Code.

"We strive to promote a positive learning environment in schools consistent with the values of the HDSB and to ensure a safe and inclusive environment for all students, staff and the community, regardless of race, age, ability, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, socioeconomic circumstances or body type/size."

Ontario news outlets also defended the teacher, saying that while "the teacher is wearing a prosthetic chest piece of some kind," criticism of Lemieux is misogynistic and harmful to Lemieux.

Lamar Odom is off the market and dating an unclockable male-to-female transgender model.

According to reports, Odom, 42, is dating a Khloe Kardashian look-a-like named Danielle Alexis, an Australian actor and model who appeared on the hit TV series "Wentworth."

In a 2020 interview with Woman's Day magazine, Alexis said, "My original name was Shayne and I was born a boy — and I can finally say that name and feel safe that I'm not about to get teased."

"Mum understood and never tried to change me. I grew my hair, wore colorful clothing, collected My Little Ponies and was dancing and performing from when I was four. Dad, however, never supported my feminine pursuits, and when he bought me a yellow boy's mountain bike for my fifth birthday, I bawled my eyes out, wondering why I was being punished."

This appears to be Odom's first LGBT+ relationship. The former NBA star is best known as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers and for being the ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian (pictured in 2012).

So far, Khloe hasn't commented on his new relationship.

Odom is the latest heterosexual male to switch teams and date transgenders amid Hollywood's push to portray biological women as masculine and independent.

R&B singer Tevin Campbell officially came out of the closet after decades of speculation about his sexuality.

The "Can We Talk" singer confirmed his identity as a gay man in a new interview on the PEOPLE Every Day podcast on Thursday.

"What makes me happiest right now is how far I've come in life," he said. "You know, there are a lot of child stars that don't make it. But a lot of us do ... and the fact that I've embraced me."

Fans have speculated about Tevin's sexuality for decades. The effeminate singer seemed to come out earlier this year when he tweeted (then deleted) "Tevin is..." followed by a rainbow flag emoji.

Tevin, who sang in the children's choir at his church, got his first big break at age 13 when he collaborated with the great Quincy Jones on the song "Tomorrow" on Jones' album Back on the Block.

Tevin's Platinum-selling debut album, T.E.V.I.N., spawned the hit single, "Tell Me What You Want Me to Do," which peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1991.

His second album, I'm Ready, released in 1993, went double-Platinum and included two hit songs penned by Babyface; "Can We Talk" and the album's title track "I'm Ready."

Jason Whitlock roasted pop singer Beyonce in a blistering review of her 7th studio album Renaissance in his podcast.

In his review, the popular sports journalist notes that Beyonce has more in common with rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion than R&B icon Aretha Franklin who demanded "Respect."

Whitlock said the mother-of-three "symbolizes the catastrophic descent of black culture and America's indifference to its fall."

"Expectations have fallen so low for American black people that no one expects Beyonce to mature or make music that uplifts black folks."

In response to the backlash on social media, Beyonce agreed to remove a word, "spazz," from her song "Energy" because it is considered a slur to people with cerebral palsy.

"What I find fascinating about all of this is that people with cerebral palsy care more about policing the way they're portrayed in the entertainment and media world than black people do," Whitlock said.

"We're the only group with absolutely no standards. The entire rap music industry is built on the N-word... No one cares. Beyonce uses the N-word in "Heated." No one cares," he says.

Whitlock added: "Every minority group aggressively polices how they're characterized in music, television, and movies except black people."

He continued: "Beyonce has black queer bravado. She instantly bowed to disability rights advocates while promoting degeneracy for black people. She doesn't really care about us."

Darian Lewis, a popular Houston DJ, known as DJ D Baby, died after falling from a balcony of a high-rise apartment building last week.

Lewis reportedly fell from a balcony on the 13th floor and landed on the 9th-floor pool deck on July 4. Lewis was transported to a hospital, where she died Wednesday.

The police investigation is ongoing, however Lewis' death was ruled accidental, according to The Daily Beast.

Jackson denied accusations that she caused Lewis' death. "There's no way I could have pushed her over the edge," Jackson wrote, adding that Lewis "was only able to get over because she climbed on to the furniture.

"I would have literally had to pick her up & throw her over which is absolutely absurd! WE WERE NOT FIGHTING!"

Lewis' mother, Terri Lewis, confirmed her daughter's death in a Facebook post on Wednesday. She wrote, "My youngest and only daughter has transitioned. please pray for the family, my heart is heavy and broken."

"Stranger Things" star Noah Schnapp (right) says his character Will Byers is gay and in love with Mike Wheeler (played by 19-year-old Finn Wolfhard).

In the past, when rumors circulated that Schnapp's character was gay, the 17-year-old actor said Will's sexuality was up to the audience's interpretation.

However, in an interview with Variety, Schnapp said it's "100% clear" that Will is gay and in love with Mike, who is heterosexual and dating a girl.

Over the last 2 seasons, Stranger Things has hinted at Will's sexuality. In the last season, the script strongly hinted at Will's struggle with his sexuality and his feelings for best friend Mike Wheeler.

Via Insider: "In episode eight, Will gives a pep talk to Mike (Finn Wolfhard) about Mike's girlfriend Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) during a car ride. Will then cries silently while staring out of the window, making it clear that he's talking about his own feelings for Mike while disguising them as Eleven's feelings.

In a recent interview with Variety, Schnapp said that the car scene "solidified" the fact that Will is in love with Mike and doesn't know how to express that feeling."

LGBT+ groups praise Netflix's efforts to increase visibility of LGBT+ characters in its programming. It is part of an overall Hollywood effort to increase LGBT+ visibility to 40%.

In other news, Schnapp has apologized to singer Doja Cat for publishing her private TikTok DMs asking him to hook her up with his 29-year-old co-star Joseph Quinn.

A Maryland man posing as a federal officer has been charged in a series of attacks on gay men in a Washington D.C. park.

Michael Thomas Pruden, 48, is accused of assaulting five men at Meridian Hill Park in Washington, D.C., the Department of Justice said.

Prosecutors say Pruden posed as a U.S. Park Police officer and assaulted men who solicited sex from other men at a Washington D.C., park over a three-year period.

Meridian Hill Park, also called Malcolm X Park, is "informally known ... as a meeting place for men seeking consensual sex with other men," a DOJ spokesperson said in a news release on Thursday.

The DOJ said Pruden, posing as a Park Police officer, approached men, shined a light in their faces and gave "police-style directives," according to the news release. He then sprayed the men with mace, before attacking them.

Four of the victims were assaulted because of their "actual or perceived sexual orientation," according to the indictment.

Just when Kevin Samuels' followers thought they found his successor, their hopes have been shattered.

Jesse Lee Peterson, a Los Angeles-based pastor, was a shining star in the growing "manosphere" movement.

The manosphere is a testosterone-fueled community of masculine, conservative men who value the nearly forgotten traditional male and female gender roles.

The men of the manosphere were crushed when their leader, Kevin Samuels, died of a cardiac arrest in his Atlanta apartment on May 5.

Samuels' distraught followers turned to the Internet in search of another fearless leader.

They turned to Pastor Peterson, the president of the manosphere, and soon crowned him as Kevin's replacement. Pastor Peterson shared some of the same traditional gender norms as Samuels and his followers.

Peterson believes women should stay in their place and that men should be the head of the household.

According to The Daily Beast, Peterson once claimed that a woman who orgasms during sex is "becoming a man".

Peterson is also a vocal anti-gay activist. He once called gay people "Satan," and said that "radical homosexuals are evil."

So it came as a surprise when the pastor's homosexual hookups came forward and accused him of being a gay groomer.

In June, Milo Yiannopoulos, who now interns for Marjorie Taylor Greene, released a nearly 30-minute investigation into Peterson called "Amazing Disgrace."

In the video, a Church Militant reporter interviewed two men who alleged they had sexual contact with Peterson.

Church Militant also spoke with a man named Patrick Rooney (right), a past lover who knew the pastor for 30 years.

Rooney said that, soon after they met, Peterson asked him if he was gay. Rooney described Peterson doing "horseplay" to get closer to him. "He would grab me and we would wrestle around a little bit, and I would feel his private parts against me," Rooney said.

"I'm very sorry to have Jesse's situation damage the conservative movement," said Rooney.

Peterson, who claims he is celibate, has avoided the scandal by not returning reporters' phone calls or emails.

In June, a caller to his online show managed to get a question in about the controversy. "I'm just kind of confused. Why haven't you addressed the issue of the gay documentary?" she asked.

"Uh, it's not concerning to me," Peterson told his audience before hanging up on her.

"What a wicked woman!" he declared.

Meanwhile, Christian also posted a video in which he offers to buy an American flag for the Starbucks location. The confrontation with Kehlani occurred after he questioned the Starbucks barista about the an American flag.

She said she got to the window and informed the Starbucks workers that the guy behind her was a "Republican Trump supporter" who "has a habit of harassing" the LGBT+ community.

"They're like, yeah, I know that kid... I'm like, he's a f---ing as-hole."

You know what happened next.

Cases of Monkeypox have exploded due to close contact among men who have sex with men (MSM) in gay bathhouses.

Men who have sex with men comprise the vast majority of monkeypox cases in this unprecedented outbreak, NBC News reports.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recorded 6,924 confirmed monkeypox cases in the global outbreak, the majority have occurred among gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, the CDC reports.

Skin-to-skin contact during sex is likely the primary driver of the virus's global spread thus far.

Bathhouses and gay sex clubs are breeding grounds for the virus, experts say.

NBC News spoke with 18 gay men who contracted monkeypox after having sex in sex clubs in New York and Europe.

The men described signs and symptoms including skin lesions, headaches, and debilitating pain.

"The thought of a full three-week quarantine is pretty scary," said John, 32, from New York City. He believes he contracted monkeypox after he hooked up with a man during Los Angeles's Pride events. "I'm just feeling disappointed and bummed out. It was a bummer to miss celebrating Pride" in New York.

"I feel like this is something that's about to hit pretty hard," John said. "It's on us to look after our own."

Phoenix Suns' VP Ryan Resch made NBA history by becoming the first openly gay executive in the team's basketball operations.

Resch, the Suns' vice president of basketball strategy and evaluation, came out to Suns General Manager James Jones.

Now Resch has set his sights on a new goal: to normalize homosexuality in the National Basketball Association.

"I finally looked at my personal life and I realized just how deeply unhappy I was," he told ESPN. The hardest part then was saying, 'What are you afraid of? Why are you actually afraid to admit who you are and tell the world who you are?'"

"I finally told myself, 'You need to stop running away from the obvious, and the obvious is that you're gay.'"

The 29-year-old wants to pave the way for other closeted executives and NBA players to come out.

"Ultimately my goal is to normalize for people in and out of the league the existence of gay men and women on the basketball side," Resch said.

Resch, who admitted to previously dating women, explained why down-low NBA players are afraid to come out of the closet.

"For a player who's concerned about risking sponsorship, or extremely high-dollar contracts, or dealing with media questions or podium questions when they're in the middle of a playoff run, that's difficult. We don't necessarily provide people in this industry with the privacy, time or space to become comfortable with who they are."

Big Freedia fans want Beyonce to give the bounce legend a feature credit on her new house music track "Break My Soul."

Big Freedia received writing credit on "Break My Soul" because the song included Freedia's vocals and a sample from his 2014 song, "Explode."

Access Hollywood's Scott Evans spoke to Big Freedia about the noise fans are making over the lack of a feature on the track that is credited to Beyonce only.

"I'm just grateful for the Freedia, you know, for the royal court that fights for Freedia and who wants to see me visible and all of these things that my voice is lended to. So I'm grateful for my fans and for the people who want to see me get my roses and get my flowers while I'm still here and living and well. I'm just grateful for all these moments."

Big Freedia was nominated for a 2011 GLAAD Media Award and starred in his own series on Fuse Network called Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce.

"Saucy Santana, the girls may call the gays for makeup, hair, stylist, etc, but gay men are not the BLUEPRINT.. the gay men imitate the WOMEN most of all. Without the women being the ACTUAL blue print the gay men would have nothing to go off of."

King Push got a lot of pushback from gay men for his personal opinions. In a follow-up post, he wrote:

"Y'all really MAD about my opinion like I GAF! I said what I said and ain't changing on it.. so stay out my DM! Just keep that shit cute cause I'm REALLY on whatever you on!"
